In a fiercely competitive market, textile stakeholders simply must innovate by offering ever more collections whilst ensuring optimum availability and the best selection of their products in their sales outlets (boutiques, branches in department stores) as well with their customers (retailers – wholesalers or stockists).
The Supply Chain in the textile industry depends heavily on its specific features and has all kinds of challenges to take up:
- rationalising references;
- increasing volumes;
- rapid renewal of collections;
- curtailing the "Time to Market" or "Design to Store" and product life cycle;
- having a Supply Chain that can produce at reduced prices whilst improving responsiveness to demand;
- having management rules and processes that can optimise replenishment of sales outlets whilst limiting stock risk;
- managing a complex network of suppliers to ensure product availability on time;
- having a highly effective and flexible logistics tool to ensure distribution of products over the various existing channels (e-business, retail, stockists);
- improving coordination and integration of suppliers in the manufacturing process (anticipation of needs and product quality control);
- improving definition of selections per store type;
- optimising costs and stocks.
